What are Tiered Pay Rules?

Answer / Solution

Tiered Pay Rules Explained


Pay Models allow an Administrator to define how to compute Pay for an MT when the Pay Report is run.  In addition to assigning a Default Pay Model, multiple Pay Models can be applied to an MT by creating a Tiered Pay Rule.  This may be necessary for instances where you need to pay a different rate for a specific Facility, Document Type, Document Type Category, Author, or Author Pool.  For example, if you pay by the report for radiology work, one line rate for Acute Care, and another line rate for Clinic work, this can be accommodated using Tiered Pay Rules. This article explains how to set up and manage Tiered Pay Models for an MT.

When running the Pay report, each job will be evaluated against the rules specified. The evaluation will start at level 1 and continue until a matching rule is found.  If no match is found then the default billing model will be used.


  • Login to the InfraWare Management Console (IMC) with your Administrator Username and Password.
  • Go to the Administration tab ⇒ Users sub-tab.
  • Click on the pencil icon to the right of the User name on the Administration tab ⇒ Users sub-tab to go to the Transcriptionist Settings page for that MT.
  • Scroll down to the Pay Rules section
  • Click on the Manage Rules link next to the setting for Default Transcription Pay Model:
  • A popup window will open with options for setting up and managing Tiered Pay Rules.
  • To add a new level click on the link to Add New Row.  A new row will be added to the listing.  
  • Select a Facility from the drop-down menu.
  • Select the Level Type from the drop-down menu.  Options include:
    • Facility
    • Document Type
    • Document Type Category
    • Author
    • Author Pool
  • Select from the drop-down menu. 
    • If Document Type was chosen as the Level Type choose the Document Category from the drop-down menu and then choose the Document Type from the drop-down menu. 
  • Select the Model from the drop-down menu listing all Pay Models which have been definehe
  • To duplicate a level click Copy.  This will give you a copy of that row so you can select another facility DocType, etc. and save multiple steps when multiple levels require the same Model.
  • Click on Save Changes.

  • Click the Remove link next to a row to remove it from the listing.
  • When running the Pay report, each job will be evaluated against the rules specified.  The evaluation will start at level 1 and continue until a matching Rule is found.  To move a row up or down the list click on the up/down arrow links to the left of the listing for each row.
